Laminitis: A Plague of Unconscionable Proportions -- Healing and Protecting Your Horse Using Natural Care Principles and Practices
by Jaime Jackson
Perfect bound color 2016 edition. 102 pp.
“This book provides a concise and useful guide for horse owners to take immediate and productive action against laminitis and keep it out of their horses’ lives once and for all . . . Nipping away at the edges of the [laminitis] plague, NHC continues to grow with adherents who want nothing better than what is good for their horses. So, the answer lies not in a drug-addicted world of ‘treating symptoms’ but in the holistic fold of equine vitality. There is no shortage of things that we all can, and should, do to support this end: more responsible horse ownership, good science, good research, safe feeds, safe drugs, and a revolutionary new vanguard of allied services that inure to the healthful vitality of the horse, not a perpetual state of laminitis. But we’ll never see any of it, if we persist in the delusion that the current stream of ‘profits at all costs’ — the industrialization of laminitis — equates to the well-being of the horse. It doesn’t, and the intent of this book is to show why, while pointing to a good path to get ourselves and our horses on ‘at all costs’.” -- excerpt from the foreword.
"In contrast to conventional therapies, I take (and teach) an entirely different and unique approach to laminitis treatment, particularly in the way we deal with its triggers. Basically it works like this: known triggers are removed entirely (or mostly so) from the horse’s lifestyle, and the horse is then brought into the broad, holistic fold of NHC based on the wild horse model. This accomplishes a number of things: pain is mitigated; the inflammatory response of the triggers in the foot’s dermal structures is calmed so that sensitive tissue (e.g., the LAM) can heal; and the body’s vascular and digestive tracts are restored to their natural balance and vitality." -- excerpt from page 22.
